6:01 am
>> reporter: not called t.v.'s biggest night for nothing and we will look at last night's emmy awards. ♪ a man negotiated the release of six hostages held by houthi rebels and flown where u.n.-backed talks are being held to try to end the conflict and houthis say they are planning a mass rally in sanaa to celebrate the first capture in the capitol and we report. >> reporter: caught in the cross fire, civilians seek safe shelters in the central city of thai where fighting has been over the last few days and groups backed by coalition forces on the offensive but the progress is slow. >> translator: the terrain is not helpful at all, the houthis
6:02 am
have minded most of the fields in this area so we are cautious and yemen's new army has not deployed all its units yet. >> reporter: a year after houthi rebels took over the capitol sanaa their leader remains defiant. >> translator: we are confident we will ultimately prevail, our people have defeated invaders in the past and we will do the same thing again, we will continue the fight until we liberate each and every inch of our country. >> reporter: houthi leaders seem to be willing to compromise. his group has freed saudi hose hostages and an american and a britain and a senior houthi official and a close aid to former president saleh and he is trying to mediate a political settlement between yemen's warring factions but a peace
6:03 am
deal may be a long way. the saudi-led coalition is pounding areas in labor and in another houthi stronghold. and the international government says it will only join talks if the houthis hands over weapons and withdraw from cities they have captured. al jazeera. after a year of war yemen is more divide than ever and let's show you who is who in yemen and houthis named after the man who led their rebellion in 2004 who say houthis are backed by supporters by president saleh and are up against government forces aligned with president hadi who is in exile in saudi arabia and the same country leading a coalition of nine arab states against the houthis and started air strikes in march and are still ongoing with the backing of sunni tribes on the ground in yemen and of course there are the successionist in
6:04 am
the south, the secular nationalists who want to break away from the north and taking advantage of years of instability and chaos, there is al-qaeda which has grown in size and strength. it is staunchly anti-houthi but not in line with the coalition and we will go to the resident coordinator of the u.n. in yemen and joins us now live from sanaa and thanks for being with us, what are the chances of these u.n. sponsored talks in yemen making any sort of progress given that the yemeni government is not yet attending? >> thank you for asking me first of all. we have never tried to stop continuing to seek a political solution to this conflict. sometimes in a visible manner sometimes an invisible manner
6:05 am
and this cannot be solved and as we talk we are going to give it another try. our political team is there. the special envoy of secretary-general is there and they arrived yesterday and we will try to convince the side that that is the moment to exercise more flexibility to restart the serious political process. >> do you think there is any chance that this political process can prevent the operation that we are hearing that the saudi-led coalition may be about to begin to retake the capitol sanaa? >> we do not tell ourselves we have a significant challenge. exactly what you said is our principal concern. how we can avoid the military operation which is expanding as we speak from the north of the
6:06 am
country in the oil-rich region to the south with intention of being rich in the capitol city of sanaa to prevent military operation in the capitol city itself because it would be catastrophic in terms offensive yanukovich lo yanukovich -- of civilian losses and we are making sure that kinds of development is avoided at all costs. >> reporter: something like 80% of the population are in need of humanitarian assistance and tell us about the way the u.n. is working on the ground right now, the difficulties they are experiencing. >> well, the situation is catastrophic on two accounts and as you indicated earlier the continuous, never ending expansion of military activities on the ground, in the north, in the south, certain areas are more effected than others and i
6:07 am
think that has been defacto strangled for weeks with no medicine, no fuel, no food, no outside expansion here. now as we speak the food from a truck that has been prevented from entering the city are desperately needed for a supply because of the escalation of activities and the military fragmentation and we are extremely concerned by the expansion they are preventing the united nation to perform and you can say by the blockage that continues to prevent much-needed important port to come in the country especially medicine which is is 100% medicine and fuel for generators so it's an assortment of causes that can really make a humanitarian
6:08 am
challenges we face as we speak an immense tragedy that knows no end. >> thank you, the resident coordinator from the u.n. speaking from yemen. greece prime minister alexis tsipras handed a second mandate by voters and he was initially voted to oppose austerity measures but now the government is tasked with reforms under bailout deals to keep greece in the euro zone and party won more than 35% of the vote easily defeating the new democracy party and let's take you live now to greece's second city and here is al jazeera who is there, this was not the result that the pollsters had predicted, was it? >> absolutely not. they had predicted that the party and alexis tsipras would come out with a victory but with
6:09 am
a very slim margin and if you listen to the conversation over the past week it's more about how would he form a coalition with a new democracy, his major contender or what will happen next and what kind of coalition will come out. well, he has a clear majority in the election and people who voted for him sort of pardoned him if i may use that word for going against the majority in the referendum, the no vote, against accepting a third bailout many would tell you he was perezed and that he had no other option. some people go as far as saying he was bullied by the international creditors to accept this view. but this is a very important figure here and that is the voter turnout figure. 56% and i was just reading in one of the reports here in the local media that is the lowest turnout in 40 years and since
6:10 am
1974 so and i think that has a lot to do with the fact that greeks are tiered, disenchanted and yesterday i was speaking to a young man who was going to vote for democracy and usually that is what he does and says does it really matter this time who wins because whoever wins will just have to go forward with these austerity measures and reform and make sure the memorandum of understanding will be applied. >> alexis tsipras will do that and has his work cut out for him though, hasn't he? >> he has a lot of work cut out and he is going to be sworn in later on today and the cabinet will be sworn if on tuesday but before the end of the year they have more than 120 bills to pass through parliament and those have to do with everything from recapzation of the badge to privatization for example of the four tiers and back in athens to
6:11 am
very brutal cuts to the social security and talks also about increasing the minimum age for early pension. so certainly a lot of very difficult decisions that are going to anger a lot of people in the cross section of greek society and people here predict very tough conversations ahead and very, very tough times. >> many thanks indeed live. eastern european ministers are meeting later on monday to try to overcome their differences over the growing refugee crisis, thousands of refugees, many of them fleeing war, are stuck right now between croatia, slow -- slovenia and hungary and they have a makeshift camp trapped on border of serbia and 20,000 people have streamed in that country in the past six days and new center is expected to
6:12 am
register people and then arrange their transport on wards to western europe and hundreds more are trying to board trains in hungry to take them to croatia and some people have to climb through windows to get a seat in the packed carriages. as thousands remain stuck at border crossings with little support from the governments slovenia as a system for registering them and lawrence lee reports from the capitol. >> reporter: yet another dismal morning for the refugees on the border with slovenia and men left here and many separated from their families who already had been moved on without them. it feels like the usual chaos. >> all people go to slovenia but up to now we don't believe them. >> reporter: but over the border things are very, very
6:13 am
different. off the buses, orderly cues of the slovenia registration center. there are betz here, plenty of food and medical facilities to care for this little child suffering from dehydration. the government said on sunday it was being given more funding from the european commission that places like this on the assumption they will have to continue to cleanup the mess. >> translator: we are trying to go through these procedures in the most organized way in the best interest of the migrants and i hope we will be able to fulfill this task to the last migrant that comes to slovenia. >> reporter: the refugees who are successfully processed end up in places like this, a disused hotel on the border with austria and the police are round but there are no restrictions on their movement at all. this mom from syria couldn't stop smiling, she was that much closer to germany and nobody in the way. >> and here in slovenia it's
6:14 am
good. >> good, very good. >> reporter: the capitol asylum center are free of their wish and simply jump on a train with anybody else, a change from having to push your children through the window. a budapest train station hungary tried and failed and they resorted to piling people on to buses and dumping them at the next available border, the contrast here couldn't be any more stark with no police officer in site and means any refugees who makes it this far has almost got there. of course slovenia has not had to deal with really big numbers but probably will and it looks like a country with a system offering a taste of freedom. lawrence lee, al jazeera, slovenia. human rights watch accused macedonia police of physically and verbally abusing refugees. the country is a key transit point for people trying to get
6:15 am
into the european union. in its latest report the organization says that police abused refugees at the macedonia border with greece. it says some people were beaten up, punched or kicked. human rights watch says some people who were forced to run between rows of police officers who were hitting them in batons. the organization also accuses police guards in the gaza baba detention center of treating refugees badly. it describes conditions there as inhumane and degrading. well the united nations says 80% of refugees in europe are from syria, afghanistan or iraq and getting out of those countries is not just dangerous it's expensive and in iraq for example thousands of people are falling to bogus travel agents charging large sums of money for visas and we have more from baghdad. >> reporter: across baghdad you see signs like these, they offer
6:16 am
visa services but more than that they offer hope and a chance to leave the violence of iraq. some of these agencies offer legitimate services but there are others that operate illegally and they allow desperate people and defraud them of thousands of dollars. marvin is one of them and doesn't want to reveal his identity because he is afraid. >> translator: i was desperate to leave iraq and i found a smuggler and he spoke with me and said there was a commercial fare in sweeden and could arrange a swedish company to represent me and he had to pick up the visa from the embassy and asked for $15,000 in expenses and fees and i left the money with a third-party and the visa never came and i was stuck in turkey with no money and no visa and i found out he was an asome
6:17 am
accomplice and says he knows your family and could kill them or target your family or kidnap your son. when i heard this i was scared and had no choice but to let him keep the money. >> reporter: authorities say they are investigating those who operate the visa fraud but so far no cases have been brought to court. ministry of migrations and displacement has seen a rise in numbers of people seeking to get out of iraq. >> translator: realistically speaking you cannot ban iraqis from leaving but we are aiming to educate them and warn them of the dangers of the journey and many are going down illegal routes out of desperation and know it's a problem and looking into it. >> there are no accurate figures for how much the fraud industry is worth or how many people defrauded because no one is willing to go to the police and report such crimes. during the course of al jazeera's investigation we uncovered cases amounting to hundreds of thousands of dollars
6:18 am
and it would seem there are many like marvin who are desperate enough to pay. that desperation is also mixed with frustration, a lot of the foreign embassys here do not offer visa services and the few that do have very long waiting lists and others ask you to go to jordan or lebanon and apply for your visa there and that with the violence and misery of living in iraq mean the smugglers and fraud sters have a willing market they want to exploit and take them for thousands of dollars, baghdad. news hour from al jazeera and the garbage is piling up and so is the anger, anti-government protests get ever louder in lebanon, running dry, how indonesia's central java province is struggling to cope due to el nino. i will tell you why new
